If the unforeseeable occurs and you are injured at work in the East Midlands, you may find that by simply contacting a legal expert you could be compensated for your pain. Some of the reasons that people make an injury claim in Ketton include:
- Slipping injuries – If there is a wet spot in your office and you slip on it, you are in for a hard fall. The impact of the ground on your body can be really jarring and may result in an injury that will take a lot of recovery time. A fractured coccyx from landing on your posterior is possibly one of the more common injuries in these circumstances.
- Tripping injuries – Imagine what might happen if you were busy focusing on the things you had to do for the day, when suddenly you tripped over a mop, a pen or even someone’s foot. In this case, their negligence could result in injury to your legs, a fall or even scrape, in which case you may have the basis for a claim.
- Falling injuries – A fall in the office is not just embarrassing. It may also result in injuries including broken bones, teeth being broken or even dislocations of the knees if you fall forwards. In this case, the fault does not lie with you and your workplace should take responsibility for your injury.
